Time is burning.

Wake up, ignition, life, burn out. Every day.

I make one porcelain matchstick every single day. Then I fire raw porcelain in the kiln, assign the dates, and keep those turned-to-stone matches in dated matchboxes.

It is my daily ritual and commitment to represent the irreversibility of time in material matter.

Since 2018 there are more than 1700 porcelain matchsticks in the passage of time collection.

Price for one matchstick is £350. Sale is subject to one condition.
